Hello and welcome!! My name is Melissa and after 20+ years in retail my very supportive husband is helping me to achieve my dream of crafting from home. From time to time he has also been known to lend me a hand on some of my projects. When I start to feel smothered it's time for me to do something else for a while, but I appreciate his "help"!
My love for sewing and fabric came from my grandmother. I learned to sew at a very young age by watching and learning from her. She would sew quilts for everyone in the family, and our family is large in numbers so there was a lot to learn. Some of my fondest memories are of her and I cutting and sewing fabric!! Some of the funniest memories are her helping me to sew Barbie doll clothes by hand and getting stuck by the needle. Now a days I am trying to have her patience as I show my 7 year old niece how to sew...
